A Matter of Trust, by Lis Wiehl
The description of A Matter of Trust painted it as a page-turner, and that's exactly what it was. I brought it with me on a four-day camping trip, thinking it would last until we headed home. I ended up devouring it so quickly it barely made it till day two.
Mia Quinn is a prosecutor who, at very beginning of the story, is on the phone with a friend and colleague when she suddenly hears her friend getting shot and ultimately killed. The story that follows is her journey to solve the murder, while simultaneously trying to keep her own family afloat. She's recently widowed, and the mother to both a teen and a four year old, who are dealing with problems of their own.
This was a tough book to put down. The characters are real and likeable, the plot twists are well-timed, and the whole thing just unfolds like an edge-of-your seat thriller. My only complaint, if I was forced to come up with one, was that it ended rather abruptly. I wasn't ready to stop reading. But I guess that's also a positive, as it's always the best books that leave you wanting more, more, more.
I really enjoyed this book, and look forward to reading other titles by this author.
I received this book for free from the BookSneeze program in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
